Restoration in Christ Church
Order of R.I.C.
Who We Are
 
The Order of Restoration In Christ (O.R.I.C.) is a monastic order under the authority of the Old Catholic Church.

However, we are interdenominational - welcoming all denominations. You don't have to be Old Catholic to be part of us.

Our only requirement is that Jesus Christ's name is first.

We are not under the authority of the Pope, like the Roman Catholics. However they are our brothers, just like the Protestants. We love all Christians and those who are seeking truth. We are in official communion with Roman Catholics, Western Orthodox Catholics and Anglicans. 

O.R.I.C is focused on both a personal relationship with and corporate worship of Jesus Christ - specifically tapping into the 2,000 years of Christian agreement around prayer, worship, etc. It's extremely powerful when both are combined. 

We are much like the original Christian Church directly after Christ's death on the cross (1 to 300 A.D.), the original Franciscan Order (1,200 A.D.), and more specifically the sector of the Church that the Apostle John helped get started - the mystical body of Christ. 

Jesus Christ has called us to “be in the world, but not of the world." - John 17:14-15 (NIV) ”I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world, but that you protect them from the evil one.”

We are also part of the convergence and empowerment movements. Through the Order, Christ has started more than 100 ministries. The Order has worked with people from all three major streams of Christianity including Charismatic, Evangelical and Orthodox.

Some ministries have gone on to be very popular, others have been more humble in terms of notoriety such as home churches, food ministries, etc. In the end it's all the same -- service unto the Lord. 

For us, it's about being led by the Lord Jesus Christ in what He want's us to do, discovering His will in all things, and being made complete by Him. 

“Unless the Lord builds the house, it's builders labor in vain.” - (PSALM 127:1) NIV. What the Lord builds, He will sustain.
